The Anatomy Lab is an award-winning experience that showcases real anatomy. The experience took students inside all of the main anatomical structures to see, touch and feel the real organ specimens. Lead by award-winning human anatomist and qualified teacher, Sam Piri, the session packed rigorously academic content into a hands-on practical enquiry-based learning experience where the students were able to apply, analyse and evaluate aspects of anatomy, physiology & disease all related to core concepts within their subject areas’ specifications.

​First-year A Level Biology, Chemistry and Psychology student, Kaif Shukla was really positive about the session and said:

” It was a great hands-on experience and I really enjoyed it and found it very beneficial for learning the basics of surgery which I found fascinating. I would recommend it to anyone  and I am very fortunate to be able to have been a part of it.”
